And amongst all this year’s colourful show gardens is a unique garden sculpture that echo’s the Christian idea of the Holy Trinity.
Called ‘Eternal Trinity’, it is an installation of three bronze Mobius forms by sculptor Ali Hutchison; ‘Endless Praise’, ‘Everlasting Love’ and ‘La Danse Eternelle’.
One nestles in the crook of a bough of an ancient ash tree, one stands proud on a base of carved brown oak, the third converses from its plinth of weathered stone. Each mobius is a visual puzzle, a sinuous loop with a triangular cross-section but only one edge and one plane. These mobiuses truly embody three-in-one, echoing the Christian idea of the Holy Trinity which also has three elements; of Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
